    Everyone get their bids done for Home Depot?


    If you don't bid you can't get the job I suppose.....

    How do you get the bid requirements? I can't handle that this year, but maybe next year I can. How does one get in on the action?

    I won't either......but you throw enough darts at the board eventually one sticks.

    EXACTLY!!! To want to plow for HD is akin to wanting to re marry your X. You are going to get F- - - - D !!!!!!

    Mick76, I don’t know why you would lose money on bidding it. The company that called us was wanting our numbers not trying to tell us what they would pay us to do them. So like Longae29 kind of said as long as you are throwing darts at it maybe one will stick sometime. I wouldn't waste my time on ones trying to tell me what they are willing to pay me they can go get bent!!!

    They are asking for your numbers because they them selves are in the bidding process. They will only tell you want they are expecting you to do it for once they have the contracts.

    The national that contacted me is not the same one that contacted you. I did throw some darts at it, but I know I won't get any of them and I sure as hell won't lower my prices to get them.

    The price for the beer alone has to be more than the contract
